Well, I guess that is to be expected after 2 years off the ice. I laced up the skates and took part in a 10 minute pre-game warm up, complete with some hot rubber flying at me! My back was GREAT. It was a little tight as I started to work it a bit harder, but it was no worse for the wear afterward. The only thing that surprised me was how weak, slow and de-conditioned I was! I can walk, run and do core work until I’m blue in the face, but it is nothing compared to real sport. I’m a long way from playing a full competitive game, but I’m getting there.
I owe it all to Mr. Boeree. He was sure I’d make it back on the ice. I play again this weekend and will take some on ice shots.
